It depends on who you ask really. Pens biggest (real) rivals are by far the Flyers. Those are some fun games to watch. Lots of fights, lots of hits, and no shortage of scoring. Flyers fans hate us, and equally, we hate them.
Toronto/Montreal, Detroit/Chicago, Vancouver/Detroit (Vancouver and Detroit are fun games all around to watch...and I HATE Detroit), Pens/Caps, Pens/Flyers, San Jose/LA, Boston/Montreal....there's tons of good rivalries.
The most boring teams, IMO, are Florida, Atlanta, Columbus (unless the Pens are playing them and it's just a ruckus cause Pens fans invade that place). They are mostly boring because there's no crowd action. There's bad teams (like the Oilers and Leafs) who are still fun to watch because the fans are always there and always into it.
